Nurse Transitions from Caring for People to Caring for Pets with New Pet Wants Franchise

As a nurse, Heather Thomas has always enjoyed helping. When she realized she was ready for a new adventure, she also realized she still wanted the opportunity to make a difference. Now she’s pleased to be able to continue her care-focused career with her new business – Pet Wants Newport.

With Pet Wants, I can combine my love of healthcare with my passion for taking care of pets in a way that makes life even easier for my customers through personal delivery … I’m looking forward to getting to know the pet families in the area, talking to them about their pets needs and helping them find products I know they’ll love,” Thomas said.

Pet Wants’ specially-crafted, private-label pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl, all made in the USA. Pet Wants Newport has multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas, treats, chews, as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more. As a mobile business, Pet Wants Newport offers free, personal delivery to Somerset, Fall River, Bristol, Tiverton, Little Compton, Portsmouth, Middletown, Newport, Jamestown and the surrounding areas.

“We are healthy eaters, but I swear my dogs eat better than I do. It’s challenging because we are able to make our own decisions when it comes to nutrition, but our pets have to eat whatever we give them. Generally, if we eat healthier food, we’ll live longer, healthier lives. The same is true for our pets,” Thomas said.

“I joined Pet Wants to help educate others about feeding good nutritious food to their pets. My mission is to educate my customers about the benefits of feeding high quality pet food and treats and to deliver the high quality pet food and treats right to their door,” she added.
